Goodyear Endurance, only trailer tire made in the U.S.A. Just bought one. 87 mph tire.


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

I run Cooper Cobras, don't think they are trailer tires but they are great and look great.

I run Marathons, but that may just be me. Dunno. Hope this helps Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

Go read my 2nd comment. Come to find out the tires I have been using for the past 18 years are JUNK, according to a tire or rubber expert, so I will change them next time I need tires,. I have run 4 sets during that time frame, but the neweer ones are not as good as the older ones. SORRY ABOUT THIS!!!!!!!!!!

Good lord....don't bring this up! It reminds me that I have cheap Chinese tires.

Couldn't even tell you the name of em. But.i have had them for a year and a half....regularly pull the boat long distances at 70-75 mph. I put 600 miles on them in the last weekend alone. That said, I am one of the few that actually wears through the tread before they blow up. My trailer has around 14,000 miles on it since the tires were installed January 2017.

For me, the tires die of age (4yrs + UV + flat spots) before the treads wear. This is typical because the lack of mileage, especially for a boat. So the Marathon is a good one. Just make sure if you park it for a long time, move it around so it doesn't sit on the same spot for long periods. Some people keep it on jackstands to take the pressure off.

The bottom line, in my opinion is care is a big factor, no matter which tire you go with. good luck

My son has Marathons on a 2012 boat, blew one tire last October, blew one tire last Friday going to Cedar Creek, blew another one Saturday coming home from Cedar Creek, the tires look new and are garage kept, maybe his boat sits too long.

Triangle gets my vote... as close to the quality of the old school Marathons as you'll find and the price is right!

They are what I prefer as well. VERY good tires for the money.
